10 Tips To Give Your Room A Hotel Makeover

1. Minimize The Clutter – Clean Your Room

Hotels, even the 3-star ones, are very organized and clean. So ensure that all your stuff lying around the house is packed up neatly inside all the extra storage space. Make sure you vacuum and sweep regularly, and keep your furniture and fixtures polished. The idea is to have a clutter-free environment, which makes the room very hotel-like.

2. Use Crisp, High-Quality White Linen And Plush Pillows

The most inviting part of the hotel room is the bed, so make sure you use crisp white sheets. A white bed not only denotes luxury but also ensures a comfortable good night’s sleep. For the 5-star feeling, you can also try triple sheeting, where you place a soft thin blanket between two starched sheets.

Another tip would include fluffing up your pillows with your hands and adding silk pillow covers to them. If not, something crisp, clean and plush will just do the trick.

3. Put On Some Translucent White Curtains

Putting up white translucent curtains that reach the floor can lend a very sophisticated vibe to your room. Not only will the white bring in more light into your room but will also give your room a very positive vibe.

4. Install Mood Lighting

More lamps around the room create a soft ambient lighting, lending that soothing hotel experience. So light more candles around your house, make some DIY lamps if you don’t possess them and induce the mood lighting.

5. Lounge In a Nice Robe

There is nothing more royal and relaxing than being dressed in a silk robe. Get into a silk robe or a bathrobe, depending on what you possess, and voila, you instantly feel luxurious. Catch up on a movie, read a book, lounge around your favorite spot, or simply dance around while being dressed in luxury.

6. Get Into Your Comfiest Home Slippers

If you’re among those who possess fluffy fur slippers, time to get them out because now is the best time to chill around in them.

7. Try Breakfast In Bed And Indulge In Chocolates:

Ask your significant other or any family member to prepare a scrumptious breakfast for you, and have that in your bed, while you don that gorgeous silk robe. It’s one version of room service you can try now. Also, don’t forget to indulge in something sweet as many of the world’s best hotels treat their guests with a lovely assortment of chocolates each day.

8. Bring Out The Best Towels And Bathing Essentials You Own

Get your comfiest towel set out, and place it neatly in your bathroom. Also, ensure you’re bathing with some of the best bathing essentials you own. A long warm bath can magically calm your nerves that are going berserk due to the coronavirus.

10. Add Some Beautiful Handmade Art To Your Room

Art in hotels can be such a hit or miss. However, since it’s your own room, you get to choose what you can put up. Get your artistic side on and paint anything you like and put it up. If not, you can also print some artwork off Pinterest and decorate your room.

If you’re not into art, you can also add some plants or fresh flowers. These can elevate your room into a hotel almost instantly!

So that’s it, this is all you need to do for getting a little taste of luxury at your home! Yes, it’s a lot of work, but with that extra time on your hands, you can surely go that extra mile!
